We think one of the of the best things about owning your very own motorhome is being able to pack your preferred possessions wherever you go, including food. Bringing along your favorite foods, recipes, and having the ability to cook on the road is a huge part of the vanlife fun.
Using the kitchenette in your RV or motorhome allows you to prepare some of your favorite meals as well as become a creative on the road chef. On top of the fun of cooking with family and friends, the savings on restaurant bills are a big plus.
When planning your next road trip in your campervan, take a look at some of these three delicious and simple breakfast recipes.

“No Mess” Omelet in a Bag

1 omelet per bag

Campfire Mexican Omelet (with Chorizo)
Our pro tip for this recipe is to use high quality chorizo and corn tortillas. Other than that, you just can’t go wrong with this easy-to-make and delicious omelet.
- 4 corn tortillas
- 8 beaten eggs
- ½ lb. of chorizo sausage (diced or crumbled) taken out of the casing
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 ½ cups of cheddar or mexican cheese (mild, medium or sharp, depending on preference)
- ¼ cup sweet onion diced
- 2 tbsp of pico de gallo or salsa (canned or prepared ahead)
- 2 tbsp of mexican crema or sour cream
- In a cold pan, cook chorizo into small chunks. Place pan on high heat. As the chunks sear, break them apart into small pieces as possible until it looks like taco filling. When meat is fully cooked, scrape to sides of the pan. Meat should be cooked after 4-6 minutes.
- Take tortillas and cut them into quarters. Take pieces from 2 of the tortillas and place them into a hot cast iron skillet. After two minutes, the tortillas should be crisp. Continue this process with the rest of the tortillas. After all tortillas are crisped, place them in the skillet and add chorizo.
- Pour beaten eggs over the tortillas and sausage. Allow eggs to cook for 3 minutes. Allow uncooked eggs to run down the sides of the skillet.
- Sprinkle cheese over the omelet. Allow cheese to melt for about 30 seconds. When cheese is melted, take pan off heat for about one minute, keeping the pan covered.
- Cut omelet into squares, sprinkle on toppings such as pico de gallo, salsa, and sour cream.
Coconut French Toast (Vegan)
This healthy recipe is vegan, meaning there’s no dairy or animal products. However, if you wanted to, you could always substitute the coconut milk for eggs and milk to make it non-vegan.
- 1 lb loaf of crusty French bread (cut into 1″ thick slices)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 (14 oz) can of coconut milk (regular milk and eggs can be substituted)
- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- ½ tsp of salt
- Coconut oil
- Warmed maple syrup
- Fresh blueberries
- Shredded coconut flakes
- In a large bowl or container, mash the banana until it’s smooth. Add coconut milk, vanilla extract, salt, and sugar. Whisk together until mixture is as smooth as possible.
- Heat a tablespoon of coconut on the skillet over medium heat.
- Dip sliced bread into the banana/coconut mixture. Let excess mixture drip off, then fry the bread in skillet until it appears to be golden and crispy on each side (about 3 minutes per side).
- Serve with your favorite toppings such as blueberries, shredded coconut, and warmed maple syrup.
- Repeat as many times as desired depending on how many servings you need.
